Phillies sign mystery reliever

Dec 23, 2009, 5:30 PM EDT

Jason Bay may have a mystery team courting him, but he’s got nothing on the Phillies who have come to terms with a mystery closer:

According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Phils have
an agreement in place with a pitcher that they believe will help
fortify their bullpen. The person could not divulge the name of the
reliever, but did say the agreement is pending a physical, which would
take place during the first week of January.

I don’t know his name, but I have a pic of him. Check him out.

All this cloak-and-dagger over someone who is almost certainly Danys Baez?  A bit dramatic, don’t ya think?

    Secret source shares secret information about secret reliever. I guess Jim Salisbury REALLY wants to be the first to break the “story”.

    Given the way Baez turned out for the Orioles, maybe one of the Assassins is a more likely comparison for the Phillies.
